Tyler Perry Defends One Of His Most Controversial Characters Published: March 3, 2014

Some call her a hypocrite. Others call her a strong Christian woman. Tyler Perry calls her one of the most controversial characters he's ever written. She's Hanna Young, the struggling single mother played by actress Crystal Fox on OWN's "The Haves and the Have Nots," according to The Huffington Post.

When Perry sat down with the cast of his hit drama series on "The Tyler Perry Show," he asked Fox how she felt about playing a character viewers love to hate.

"You are one of the most controversial characters I have ever written," Perry tells Fox. "Because she's Christian. And lots of people, man. They are giving you, 'What kind of Christian does not talk to their daughter? What kind of Christian does not tell her daughter where her son his?'"
